diversity, that we have not seen before in the united states congress. interesting statistic is that among democrats in the house, white males will not be the majority any more of the democratic conference. that's the first time that has happened. we have an african-american republican appointed to the united states senate. that the first time we have had an african-american republican in the senate since 1970s, early 1980s i believe. clearly you are looking at a different group of folks in terms who've is represented up here. the problem is, they are having the same problems to deal with once they're sworn in. we have seen the swearings in going on all day, sue. >> thank you very much. congress might be be able to get much done but ty can get it done. he is at manager of the year conference and awards in chicago. ty? >> sue, i was just thinking, if you don't have to be a member of house to be speaker of house be i nominate jon stewart. >>> we are back for manager of the year awards presentation. basically golden globes, oscars, emmys of the hedge funds business. who would have turned a $1
fire damage to the battery of the auxiliary power unit. remember, the auxiliary power unit is what is used to provide power to an airplane when it is parked on the tarmac, not while it's in flight so the battery unit, severe fire kagge there, and it's pretty clear, scott and maria, that we are going to see more airlines, if they haven't already, they are going to start checking their wiring on the battery unit. i just spoke with the folks out of ana in japan. they have a number of dreamliners, checked theirs overnight at the urging of the ministry of transportation in j.i just talked with united airlines. it has checked the battery power wiring on all of its dreamliners, all six of them. the "wall street journal" reports that one of them did not have the wiring done properly, so that's clearly where the investigation is headed regarding those dreamliners and the fire we saw yesterday in boston. back to you. >> thanks. certainly will continue watching that story. boeing a dreadful couple of days as a result of this and traded already more than two times its average daily volume as a
weakened. 3m up 13%, united technologies up 12%. they are naturals to repeat their gains if not do better given strong asian exposure. 3m has been held back by a weak china. they can only improve from here after the tax bill. two well-run companies, perfect proxies for worldwide growth. 11% gains, even the most boring of stocks can generate returns. i think the same gain is in the cards for this year. cisco for all its flaws, still beat the dow by a percentage point. i can't see this company returning to the days of yore, that's not going to happen. but up 8 pr%, it can do that ag. i think it can return to the mid 20s where it closed today. what's with burke falling so far behind and an inferior pfizer going up at least historically. the pipeline needs improvement here or we'll see high single digits again. they will remain the order of the day if not the year until we hear about something that can produce multiple billions of dollars in the out years and i certainly don't see anything in merck's pipeline that can do that. verizon didn't help the cause. it's been such a good one. i think

the debt ceiling or credit rating of the united states, that's a non-issue. you're right. that's the thing we should have learned back in august 2011. people don't pay attention to the credit rating agencies anymore, especially when it comes to sovereignty debt. >> if they cut enough time it starts to impact what the government has to pay for their debt. >> look at every institutional investor -- >> if it goes low enough some treasuries couldn't buy those because the rating wasn't high enough for them. >> if you look at every single institutional investor, they define that a u.s. treasury security is a separate investment independent of its credit rating. >> because it implies a aaa credit rating that it doblt even have right now. >> interest rates that the united states pay is what the united states want to charge it. >> why rate? >> i agree. >> it's pointless. >> they shouldn't. >> can we look at this another way for a minute? let's look at this another way. let's talk about this country being able to pay its long-term bills. forget what a credit agent says about the u.s. balance sheet.

off. do not mess with the credit rating with the united states of america. however, you can race the debt ceiling and cut spending at the same time. on top of that, you kcan fix th $2 trillion situation. that is my take. charlie wrangle from new york and i begin with you. i don't understand why that can't be done. you can get that done. you are one of my buddies, but i object to you using the default. you have enough cash flow and the vast majority. i hate that argument. i know. but it is wrong to call it default. >> why not avoid default all together. because i believe it distorts the rest of the debate the good congressman and i need to have. >> cutti inting spending, i don want to get hung up on default. it is all bad. welcome back, sir, why can't we have our cake and eat it too? why can't we compromise with spending cuts at the same time too? >> we can do it as long as we recognize it is apples and oranges. our obligation has nothing to do with our inability to govern our own spending and taxes. but anytime one tries to hold it, that is when it is wrong. whatever you want to

at the united kingdom they do not get caught up in this kind of wrangling. they are better governed nations right now. >> that's easy to say, i guess, when your comparison seems to be what is a completely dysfunctional congress at this point. jim, how do you go about trying to gauge how to even play this? you look at what happened over the end of the year, the fiscal cliff. and at the end of the day you might take away, well, they did get something done and the markets reacted positively. look at the rally in the first week of the year. do you approach it the same way? it seems to be to a certain extent we're not ignoring it, but at least saying i'm not going to -- >> i don't want to own domestic companies as much as i want to own foreign companies. s.a.p. not included. i think some of that's america's shakeup there. i think there are a lot of companies doing well. if you look to ppg's conference call yesterday, they're seeing a turn in asia. they're seeing europe getting better. so i want to be more oriented toward ppg and a little less toward target. >> ending a partnership with radio sha

on constitutional grounds based on the 14th amendment to the constitution which says that the debt of the united states shall be respected. so their argument would be in that case that it is simply unconstitutional to have a debt ceiling at all. and they say that congress -- the president rather would be able to do that without invoking congress or meeting congress in any way. >> section 4, 14th amendment, validity of the public debt of the united states shall not be questioned. that's the exact wording. doesn't say increased. it says it cannot be questioned. but then law, constitutional law scholars are saying to everybody, it is constitutional to have the congress make the debt changes. they are allowed to do that. the 14th amendment has nothing to do with that. in fact most of the 14th amendment, due process, equal protection and citizenship clause is about giving african-americans the right to vote, live and prosper in the united states. >> right. that's right. and clearly if the president was to do what they call the constitutional option that the democrats are raising here as a possibility
building materials, not only in the united states but over in asia, you'll have competition for those goods and a monetary policy that's flooding the system with currenty. >> steve sax, your best investment idea right now? >> i think sector-wise, i hate to do it, but i have to agree on tech. i think it's an area that obviously had good performance in 2012. we think that continues, although the first couple of years have been a little rough. look at the other sector you know, that have performed well late last year, financials, and then we're seeing, you know, industrials and materials pick up this year as well. consumer discretionary which we touched on is an area that i would take a look at. it's been tough to make money shorting the american consumer over the long term and the pickup in the consumer discretionary secretary ore probably continues, at least the first half of this year. >> carol, you told us what you don't like. restaurants. what do you like? >> and for how long? >> so i love the multi-level marketers that everybody else seems to hate and fair disclosure here. i've got a pos
. >>> if he is going to abide by we don't want you playing around with the united states relationship. he's going to have to be a lot more kinder and gentler to this president who won and overwhelming mandate to avoid going to war with iran. if you catch the president's speech and his address there were lines in there that made it clear that the president is going to walk the extra mile to see if he can engage iran rather than go to war with iran. >> i'm sure that he will. i'm sure that the president of the united states will have that military option still on the table. larry, the key here is that it is quite evidence that he doesn't have the strength or the political power to force the president of the united states hand when it comes to iran the way that he had it going into the primaries. it is evidence that the public will not stand on him playing politics on israel's security by undermining israel's relationship with the white house. one of the lines in the inaugural speech. let's stay on that, it is possible according to mr. obama to win the peace without having a war. that is the

of the president of the united states. >> the office of president of the united states. >> now today, president obama will attend his public inauguration in washington. the reason why that ceremony happened yesterday is the president that's be sworn in by i think it's noon on the 20th. that was the private sayre mope. the private one takes place today. as many as 800,000 people are expected to attend the swearing-in in washington. the president will repeat his swearing in and give the traditional speech. if you're wondering how markets have done since president obama took office, 10 5/% return for the nasdaq, 65% for the dow. we're not necessarily attributing this to president obama himself, but you can look at how oil markets have traded over the last four years. the recovery from the credit crisis had pretty much most to do with the trends that we're seeing here. present adding almost 60%. nymex adding 34%. allen, you know, the point of these charts is during, i guess, more normal times which we know don't influence markets in any material way anyhow. president obama came into office when we

we're pretty long through the united states of three-ring circuses. the most important spur for investment is confidence. three issues that held up business formation and stock investing for a long time. put a drag on it. uncertainty of the presidential election, uncertainty of the fiscal cliff and the sequester debt ceiling argument. two big bad events, only one more station on the gauntlet. it simply isn't as scary or meaningful as when it comes to the stock market or new business formation. sorry, it won't sell as many parents, and it just won't. smart investors are making a bet they can't wait for the third of the three washington incursions to be finished. once a big bad event is passed, the rick of responding floods in. now we're about to finish the third leg of the political steeplechase, and we will be given a level of certainty. you want to wait for those people to come in? it could be investing nirvana, a guy in brooklyn, cramer, smart guy. scared us with the election, scared us with the fiscal cliff and now scaring us with the debt ceiling. what are you going to s

with senator mitch mcconnell. if the president of the united states wants to talk about tax increases, look it up in the history books because it's not coming during 1913th session of the united states congress. >> how significant are the spending cuts that you're talking about? what would it take to get to you raise the debt ceiling? >> two things that would have to occur, either one of which would cause me to raise the debt ceiling, one is a balanced budget constitutional amendment phased in over a period of time that would force washington to deal with this issue in a serious way. and the alternative, there would have to be spending cuts, real spending cuts, first year in excess of $100 billion. >> 100 billion. okay. constitutional amendment in a long time. jim newsel, you called the fiscal cliff deal to this point a fiasco. what had your high expectations for what's to come on the spending and the debt limit that they have to deal with in the next couple of months? >> i don't have very high expectations. >> i didn't think so. >> i mean, i think at this point in time we're seeing history

the united states congress refuses to pass an extension to the debt ceiling. if that happens, the united states can't add any new debt, cannot continue to borrow, so what would you have to do if you're the united states government? you'd have to live off of your tax receipts. take a look here at some of the charts that we've prepared, and can you see exactly how much money the u.s. government brings in every month. it's about $206 billion in receipts every month. that's the whole amount of money the u.s. government would have to finance its operations so how does that break out? what are the expenses on a monthly basis? we'll start with the absolute must-dos. interest on the debt, $29 billion a month. got to pay that. social security, got to pay that. 65 billion, medicare about 42 billion. veterans will b $11 billion. income security programs. that's about $46 billion in expenses every month and also military salaries. this is our estimate so some of these numbers are a little bit rough, but that's about $13 billion a month, and what does that get you? it gets you a grand total of expens
your call? >> i think the biggest driving force is that the growth rate not only in the united states but around the globe is turning out to be better than expected. we came into this year expecting 2% growth for the united states. i really think we'll end up closer to three. china is coming back to life. europe is calming down. we've got a lot of positive economic momentum. and in addition to that, you got confidence at five-year highs and people are starting to settle down and think maybe this is going to be a multiple year recovery so they can increase their valuations on the earnings streams. we're seeing mobiles rise. a lot of good things. starting to see people come back into the equity markets a little bit finally reaching all-time record highs. i think a lot of these forces will take us higher this year. >> okay. i don't know who is directing, liz, dan. if you could show me the 4 box again i'll take a poll of our guests. how many see 1700 on the s&p? raise your hand. anybody? >> by when? >> anybody? glazer is sitting on his hands there. no, larry? you don't see that? >> you kn

and still the fact that if you look at median incomes in the united states, if you look at per capita household incomes in the united states, if you look at household wealth in the united states, we are nowhere back to where we were in 2007. therefore the economy cannot generate the kind of consumption it generated in 2007. >> we're forgetting one other factor which is regulation. >> yep. >> bank regulators is one example. the small businesses i work with at the highland consumer fund have trouble getting capital. one of the reasons is despite the rhetoric from washington, the bank regulators have put in so much spending restrictions so that my small businesses who want to add jobs can't do so because they can't get the capital. >> i completely agree on that. >> we're very focused on regulations as well. >> i completely agree on the small business capital market conditions. this has been a big, big problem. it's one of the reasons the recession was so deep and one of the reasons the recovery is so slow. i agree with that. but i really want to point out, why is it so difficult to get a

in the united states from 1950 through 1999, the average growth was 3.6%, something like that annualized. since then it's been less than 2%. now, there's been a little bit of a perk up, but -- but the direction is positive, and if you start looking at how the businesses and the economy is doing and juxtapose that against the politicians who aren't behaving very well, you have to be positive regarding the situation for the future stocks. >> so you like stocks more for the fundamentals than you do for any fed or congressional action right now. am i reading that right? >> absolutely, absolutely. i mean, for the third quarter of last year our stocks had earnings of over 6% which compares very favorable, and, you know, we're looking into the future and then we compare that to the general growth rates of the u.s. economy, and there's no question they are going to outperform so it has an impact. >> the imf lowered global growth numbers today, nobody seems to care because the money has to go some place and it's not going into the bond market. >> point well taken. in the past you talked about gold. >> w
